Temperature and K

How is K temperature dependent using the Van't Hoff Equations?

K will change based on the Van't Hoff Equation because as we see in ln(k)=-H/RT+S/R, the K value is related to the T value. In the past, I don't think we had any equation that would explicitly relate the two variables. we can deduce that a large T value would greatly decrease the -H/RT component, and would give a large ln(k)=(Big x value). K would then be raised as well since 10^(big x value) would equal K. hope this helps!

I think it’s harder to relate K to temperature since the equation compares the two Ks as a ratio of ln(K2/k1)
